Why not try a low-carb diet. It is a diet that restricts carbohydrates, such as those found in sugary foods, pasta and bread. It is high in protein, fat and healthy vegetables.
There are many different types of low-carb diets, and studies show that they can cause weight loss and improve health.

This is a test reply.
I don’t have the habit of having breakfast in the morning, i just have a glass of milk and that’s it, but after accidentally coming on this post and reading about the importance of breakfast and effects of long overnight fasting, I am really worried about my health. So I will try to change this thing and have breakfast.. This piece of information that you have shared is really very important . Thanks for this.
Can I suggest that you also look at the research into gallstone formation with regular overnight fasting of more than 13 hours? Ref Dr Valter Longo’s work on benefits and risks of different types of fasting.
Thanks for the info. As a parent who has recently started putting on weight i found this piece much more useful the the standard info you get on the parenting forums.
Also love the frying Frying Pan Frittata, defo want to give that a try.
Sorry for the delay, Just wanted to say thank for the positive feedback! I also was a parent putting on weight, and lost fifty pounds several years ago, eating much this way. Let us know how it goes for you!
How can you ethically recommend an egg based breakfast as healthy? There is overwhelming research associating eating eggs several types of cancer.
Many other publications can be found on the topic.
…and just as much research suggesting that egg consumption in moderation is not associated with negative health outcomes. I agree (and the research shows) that the best plan is a plant-based diet that minimizes animal protein overall, especially red and processed meats. It’s OK to be omnivore, as long as the mainstay is plants.
